Product Description

Get Step-by-Step Guidance on Accurate Coding for Diverse Urogynecological Procedures in 2016

Urologists and gynecologists are involved more today than ever before in the performance of urogynecological procedures, especially for vaginal prolapse and urinary incontinence. This session by expert speaker, Michael A. Ferragamo MD, FACS, will lead you step by step through the accurate coding process of these procedures, both for simple and complicated urogynecological operations.

New ICD-10 diagnostic codes related to these procedures will also be explained as well as the use of multiple procedures at one surgical encounter and modifier application to the proper CPT® codes. Dr. Ferragamo will explain basic and advanced procedure coding using specific clinical examples. Additionally, you’ll get tips to avoid denials and loss of revenue and methods to prevent them from happening due to improper coding.
